Later today (around 12 EST) I’m going to be selling more of my designer clothes and accessories along with pieces from my mom’s designer consignment store ON MY TUMBLR.
After cleaning out my closet for about a month now, I’ve found tumblr is the most efficient way to pass on clothes and make a little money doing so. As a test, I also tried:
- Selling designer items on eBay
- Taking barely worn pieces to a consignment store
- Unloading a bunch of stuff at Buffalo Exchange
- Posting accessories on tumblr
- Dropping off anything else at Goodwill
Obviously Goodwill is the easiest, but I have a hard time just giving away Prada heels, ya know? Buffalo Exchange comes next, but they only give you 30% of their retail price if you take cash over a store credit. If you shop there, you know that everything seems to be under $30 so that 30% is not much.
Selling the Prada heels on tumblr for $40 to a reader who will love them felt more satisfying emotionally and financially. Even though I have to pack them up and ship them, I just felt better about the whole thing.
In the past I’ve had a garage sale, but right now, I don’t have a garage or live in a neighborhood where that would be effective.
How do you do to get rid of clothes you love but are just not into anymore?Tweet this!
